l've been doing patchwork and quilting for about five years but have always had an interest in textiles and crafts. I started off by making patchwork cushions but now like to make small quilts for babies and children which I design myself. I use alot of applique on my quilts and mainly sew by hand, though I am getting more confident on the sewing machine! I would love to chat to other like-minded people as I don't know any other quilters!

You most definitely have started in the right place. We have dozens of ladies who are chatting on here everyday. Just ask a question and you'll be sure to get a good quality answer from someone. I've been quilting for about 20 years now....lots of experience but learning from others daily.

Good to hear from you - hope you enjoy your forum time and sewing time. I too prefer hand-sewing but do use a machine for some things. However, I've moved house (recentish now) and I can find some blocks but not the sashing fabric (often machine sewn on) until I tackle THE box that is in, or boxes etc.
I attend a group called "Thursday at One" most Thursdays and we are trying to assemble (as a group was the original idea?) a wallhanging. I thought all the bits - hexagons / wadding and backing fabric were where we meet each week but I looked earlier today and only the extra fabric is there - that means the three sections are somewhere in the house or storage unit. There will be another delay while I track those down.
